The Waterford provides an environment that stimulates you both physically and mentally. The community gives residents the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of programs and activities. I cannot ask for a better place to live in.

I have loved my 2 years at Waterford. It is a caring home for us. Activities are provided for every taste. Chino has worked tirelessly to keep us happily occupied, and she and Kevin have allowed us to feel free to express our requests and needs and interests. Recent physical improvements have been a great enhancement.

The Waterford on Highland Colony was good as far as appearance. The staff who accommodated us during the tour was super nice. The apartments were really nice, too. The place would compare to any upscale apartment complex. Anything you needed, they had it right there. I couldn't say anything negative about them. It was super nice. Washers and dryers were available for the people to use. They had large sitting areas and game areas. People were sitting around playing games. They had a lot of events planned for them. They did not just leave them static; they kept them going. They were taking them places and doing things with them.

The facilities at The Waterford on Highland Colony were nice, and the rooms were very nice. They seemed to have a pretty well-rounded activity program. The marketing director was a nice lady, very helpful and informative.

The Waterford On Highland Colony was very nice and newly redone, so it looked really good. The staff was fine and nice. The dining area was very nice and clean. It wasn’t very inexpensive, but it wasn’t too high either. The activities seemed very nice.

I moved my mother into The Waterford On Highland Colony. We?re very happy with it. It?s affordable, and she likes it a lot. They?re very friendly and very helpful. They answered all of my questions and went out of their way to do everything they could. The location and everything are great. The community is very clean. It is newly remodeled with fresh carpet in the rooms. Everywhere has been completely redone, and it is very well maintained. They have new granite countertops, new sinks, new toilets, and new showers. They?re very good. The dining area is nice, clean, and very airy. The windows are open. It smells good and clean. The food and wait staff are good.

The Waterford was a nice facility, but it was a little bit more expensive than my dad was in a position to afford. The only room that was available for showing was a studio apartment, and it was very small. The staff is very considerate, friendly, and very nice. We looked at the menu, and it wasn’t bad. They mentioned several different activities like a game room as far as playing cards or checkers, and chess. They did mention a bible study. They mentioned they had a birthday party for any of the residents who had birthdays that month.

The Waterford on Highland Colony is gorgeous. It's in a green space with forest. They have a lake there and benches out beside the lake. The rooms were pretty small, but they were larger than the other place we visited, and they were updated. It's all central air. They will paint them any color that you want. They wanted me to be on the first floor because I have a dog, but I can't afford $2000 a month. They have a party once a week, and they serve wine and hard liquor with a live band. It's a very elegant place like someone's home, and it has a gorgeous library.

The Waterford was a beautiful property, but it was lacking the homey feel, and I know a lot of these elderly people are lonely. Waterford just struck me as kind of a lonesome place. It is independent living, but I just didn't get the warm feel. It was more beautiful, more modern, and more of my personal style, but I didn't get a warm feel for that time in your life or you might be lonely. They were helpful. It just seemed like it needed a warmer feel; it is hard to explain it.

We are looking into The Waterford. It was great, there were lovely people there, and the residents were really nice. We really liked the whole facility. They had cards and different things set up for different weeks. They serve three meals a day. There were several different rooms that we looked at and several different sizes. My sister said the food is fantastic.

My mother lives at The Waterford. I would give it 5 stars but the 5th star wont let me click on it. The staff is wonderful, the food is great, residents are friendly. They go over and above in everything to make sure great for her and for all the residents. You owe it to yourself and to your family to check out The Waterford before going anywhere else. You become part of a family and part of a community when you move here. I cant recommend it highly enough! We have been beyond pleased!
